2 Index  Benefits of T&Q  T&Q key features  T&Q homepage  Question Pools  New assessment: Quick create  New assessment: Slow create  Changing and previewing assessments  Publishing assessments  Working with scores and answers  Retracting a published assessment  Exporting/importing assessments  Assessment types

3 Benefits of online formative T&Q  Learners develop understanding progressively and have opportunities for feedback and reinforcement  Allows for scalable formative testing and feedback provision that would not be possible without automatisation  Available anytime, anywhere  You can delegate on students to create questions  If well used, may reduce teachers’ workload and increase students’ responsibility for their own learning  It may increase participation in face-to-face sessions Useful case:

4 Test & Quizzes in Sulis: Key Features  Automatic grading: True/false, matching, multiple choice, fill- in-the-blank, numeric response, survey (grades automatically transferred to the Gradebook tool)  No automatic grading: short answer/essay and file upload  Question Pools to re-use questions and share them  Import assessments from other sites you own and import previously created tests/quizzes/surveys (QTI -compliant files)  Create questions with online forms (standard approach) or single text box (quick create approach)  Customisation: location for taking a test, IP addresses, availability of test, time limits, number of submissions allowed, and late submissions  Attachments (by uploading local files, specifying URLs, and selecting files from Resources) to any question.  Templates (or “assessment types”) to speed customisation

5 T&Q Homepage (instructor view) 1. Core Assessments (unpublished) and Published ass’s. 2.You can return to this screen with the reset arrow ! 3.New assessment options 1.Quick Create 2.Create (recommended) 3.Import (xml file)

In the bar above the list of pools, click Import and follow instructions to import your assessment  You can also create subpools, move and delete pools  To add questions to a pool or subpool, click the “Add” link (right hand side of the screen, opposite to “Questions”), and follow steps  To Copy a question from a Question Pool to an assessment, you use the pulldown list on the Questions screen (see slide 6) to select the type of question to add.

8 New Assessment: “Slow” Create To be used for other type of questions, to create parts (needed for random assessments), and to reuse questions from Question Pools  Name the assessment and click “Create” (don’t choose assessment type for now). From menu “Add question”, add questions one by one or bring from Question Pool When you finish with the process, your new quiz will appear under “Pending assessments”. Note: the quiz is not yet available to students!

9 Create questions  You can either create new questions in your assessment or add questions from a Question Pool.  You may add question to any unpublished assessment.  Under the appropriate part, select the type of question you want to add with the “ Add Question ” pull down menu  Answer point value : If questions have two correct answers, the points for each correct question accumulate (e.g =20). For ungraded questions enter 0 (zero). Incorrect answers are worth negative points.  Using the Assign to Part pulldown list, select the part (that is, the section) of the assessment to which you want to assign this question  To assign a question to a question pool, select the name of the desired pool from the Assign to question pool pulldown list.  To provide question-level feedback enter text in the boxes under “ Correct/Incorrect Answer Feedback.” (voluntary)  You can require participants to provide a reasons for choosing an answer under Required Rationale New Assessment: “Slow” Create (2)

10 Create questions (continued) Multiple choice questions  To indicate the correct response, click the Correct Answer radio button for that response (multiple correct answers allowed)  To display the possible answers in random order, und Randomize Answers Survey choice questions  You do not have the option of randomizing answers or requiring a rationale. Short answer/essay questions  Answer point value: enter the point value you want to assign to this question. For an ungraded question, enter 0 (zero). (MANUALLY GRADED) Fill the blank questions  Place curly braces { } around words requiring a blank For example: {gravity}.  If more than one response is correct for a given blank, or to allow alternate spellings, use commas to separate the alternate responses. For example: Darth Vader actually was Luke Skywalker's {father, dad, poppa, pater, pa, daddy}.  For questions with more than one blank, each blank must contain a unique response (mutually exclusive). For example: The colors of the Irish flag are {orange, white, green}, {orange, white, blue}, and {red, white, blue}. To answer correctly, the participant must respond with some combination of orange, white, and green. New Assessment: “Slow” Create (3)

11 Create questions (continued) Numeric Questions  Place curly braces { } around numbers that require a blank (for example: 3*3= {9} y 2+2= {4} requires a blank before the digits 9 and 4).  If a range of values is acceptable, insert a pipe between the highest and lowest acceptable values (for example: 5|8 accepts answers of 5, 6, 7, and 8). Matching Questions  In the Choice box, enter a choice. In the Match box, enter the correct match for the choice you specified.  Click the Save Pairing button. Sulis saves the pair you have created and displays it under the Add/Edit Pairing and Optional Feedback header File Upload Questions  In the Answer Point Value box, enter the point value you want to assign to this question.
